View Full Version : [ubuntu] Fedora Directory 389

April 11th, 2010, 02:07 AM
I am almost finished with the installation of the Fedora 389 directory server but am getting this error; /etc/init.d/dirsrv-admin start
Starting dirsrv-admin:
* /var/run/dirsrv is not writable for

Any idea how to overcome this? I would assume it has to do with ownership, but I don't know how to fix it.

I'm not exactly sure about what user should own the file, but run

cat /etc/user

and you should be able to guess. Then run:

chown -R user:group SpamEggs

The group is NORMALLY the same as the user.
